Ronin’s Bondmate
By Mardi Maxwell
Genre: Sci-fi Romance
 
 
 
Blurb:
Krystali enchantress Belle of the House of Arlyn stands accused of spying and has been banished from her community. The truth would exonerate her but she doesn’t dare tell it. As an enchantress she can provide for herself except when it comes to defense. For that she needs a worthy warrior.
 
Zarronian warrior Ronin Hughson recognized Belle as his mate the moment he saw her. Eager to bond, he approached her and was immediately turned away by her spoiled behavior. After consulting with the starship’s doctor, he believes Krystali will produce a kinder mate for him. In the meantime, he feels drawn to protect the spoiled enchantress.
 
Belle makes sure he knows she doesn’t want him anywhere near her while Ronin makes sure she knows no other warrior was willing to protect her. Resigned to traveling together they try to ignore each other but Ronin’s mating fever and Belle’s troubles set them up for a destiny they can’t avoid.
 
 
Excerpt:
 
>Ronin Hughson shoved his way through the crowd of hostile Krystali warriors and their enchantresses. With his pack hooked over his shoulder, and freedom just a meter away, he hesitated then moved another step closer to the exit. The battle beginning behind him was one he had every intention of missing. A rarity for a Zarronian warrior who spent his life fighting and searching for his mate.
Behind him, Bellya of the House of Arlyn, stood alone in the center of the room. Angry Krystalis surrounded her, determined to deliver the punishment she’d worked so long and hard to earn.
He told himself to keep going. Don’t look back. Don’t look at her. Don’t—damn, too late. His head swiveled as if he had no control over it.
She stood alone, surrounded but in no way defenseless. Still Zarronian warriors were taught to protect females and she was quite a sight. Tall and curvaceous with long dark wavy hair and soft brown eyes. Plump lips made for kissing and hips a warrior could hold onto during the most intense moments of passion.
Her chin was up and the expression on her face dared the crowd to do their worst. Although he abhorred her arrogance he couldn’t help but admire her bravado. He took another step toward freedom then with a curse he turned back. Honor forced him to stay because whether he liked it or not the blasted female was his mate!
The moment he’d seen her he’d known she was the one female in the universe who could save him. The joy, relief and excitement he’d felt had been overwhelming until he’d actually met her. She’d been rude and obnoxious and had treated him like saber cat scat.
He’d made allowances for her. Telling himself she was young and inexperienced. That they’d just gotten off to a bad start, and he needed to go slowly with her. Now, after spending more time with her, he knew she was the last female he wanted as a mate
He had six moon phases before the Zarronian mating fever blazed out of control and killed him. Bonding with Bellya would save him but he’d rather choose a warriors’ death in battle. Ironically, either choice would have him fighting for his life.
Disappointed that he’d finally met his mate and she was so wrong for him, he’d spoken to one of the starship’s doctors. Borg Veeson had advised him to wait a while in case another Krystali female drew him to her. He’d traveled from one encampment to another, meeting hundreds of Krystali females. None had caught his attention, or raised his fever a single degree. Discouraged, he’d returned to Bellya’s village.
Now, looking around he wondered if one of the other Zarronian warriors would step forward to protect her. Most of them weren’t even paying attention to the proceedings. The few who were appeared to do so only out of curiosity.
Cursing them, he watched as the crowd closed in around her. She, of course, appeared bored and put out with the entire proceedings. An attitude that increased the tension in the room. It also increased the rage of the people around her who were ready for a bit of well-earned revenge.
Sighing, he moved to within a few meters of her and prepared himself to save her.
His movement drew her attention and for a moment their eyes met. Her eyes hardened as she gave him a disdainful get lostlook then turned her back on him. He growled with anger and clenched his hands to keep from reaching out and pulling her over his knee so he could swat her delectable bottom.

Author Bio:
I love the quirky and the unique. I believe in ghosts, UFOs, and that we have a space station on the dark side of the moon. I’ve always loved to read (anything I could get my hands on) and I especially like zombie and EMP novels. Yes, I know, but I can’t resist them. I also read a lot of romance (historical, contemporary, and I love those shifters and Doms).  I like books that put me “through the wringer,” so expect a lot of drama and laughter in my books as well. And, of course, don’t forget the happy ending.
 
I write contemporary erotic romance and steamy sci-fi romance. When I’m not working you can find me spending time with my family and friends or curled up with a good book.

RELEASE DAY IS HERE!

 

Josiah’s Love and Justice Volume II: Bonding
By Lucas X Black
Genre: BDSM
Warning: Be advised this book has mature content, possible triggers, coarse language, and scenes of strict BDSM punishment, not suitable for under 18+
 
As the story of Josiah and his expanded family of slaves continues, the family expands further when new clientele are taken on, potentially to be adopted.  Elaine comes in, injured from an accident at home, with her slaves Marvin and Beth, who have a most unhappy history with Darla.  It is a history that killed Darla’s marriage, and threatens far worse damage to her as fresh revelations from Marvin, and then from Beth, disturb Darla even further.
Conflict arises, deep and profound, as the four become seven, and Josiah is left having to make a map into their future, to end the conflicts and bind them as family.  Will his love and lashes succeed in bonding the seven into one, or are the divisions simply too deep for the damage to be undone?
 Molly had gone to Lucretia the day before, and then both had gone to Josiah with a suggestion, and Josiah accepted the suggestion that he would lash breasts and bellies while Lucretia lashed the backs.  Each slave would be whipped fore and aft at the same time to heighten the misery.  “Pardon my impudence, Master,” Lucretia said.  “But I don’t think Darla needs to see me crying when I whip her.” “Lucretia,” Josiah had ordered.  “If I see you going easy on Darla, you’ll both get punished double.  Do you understand that?” “I …yes I do, Master,” Lucretia said.  “I disagree with Darla, but this is important to her, Master, and I won’t disrespect her with any lenience.  I’ll make her bleed, Sir.  But don’t be surprised if I’m a crying little bitch by the time I’ve laid in her lashes.” “Don’t be surprised if that’s me crying too,” Josiah snorted.  “I don’t want to do this any more than you do, Lucretia.  But … she needs it, or says she does.  She thinks she deserves it and wants to give Beth, at least, maybe Elaine too by now, this … I don’t know … this act of contrition?  Penance?  I’m not sure if she fully understands the ‘why’ of it, but she’s left no doubt as to her request that it be done.”
 

 

I have been a writer for a number of years, finally branching out into publishing. I grew up in Texas, where much of what I write happens. I’ve been a R/L dom for almost a quarter century now. I’ve always liked writing, entering new vistas my mind affords. Life makes us the men and women we are, and I often (changing names to protect not so much the innocent but the delightfully sinful) dip into my life’s experiences for the fiction I will be providing you.

Heat and heart while learning to accept a bit of help.

I absolutely adored this book.  If you love a good ménage or maybe a bit curious, then this is the book for you.  It will tug at your heartstrings one moment, then have you fanning your yourself in the next.  There is plenty of love and lust interspersed with humor and growth.

Sarah has to grow and heal, before she can accept Silas and Jeremy fully into her life.  Luckily these sexy men are more than able to give her the encouragement and support she needs to get there.

I heartily recommend this book to anyone who loves a HEA, and ménage.  This baby just went to #1 favorite Lori King book.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review, but I also purchased my own copy.


STARTING OVER by MAGEN MCMINIMY

 
“There was need laced
in every twist and sweep of his talented tongue. A need for something tangible,
something to connect him to the safety of the real world, to the living
breathing life he still held on to. A distraction from the death and sorrow
that carried over from months at war

Mason Gamble and Nash Vincent are pros at making people
sweat. As former Army Rangers who run the toughest, ball-busting fitness boot
camp in Michigan, they take great pride in that fact. But thanks to the
knockout brunette housesitting next door, suddenly they’re the ones
experiencing excess perspiration. Fortunately, the perfect opportunity to be
neighborly presents itself courtesy of a package delivery snafu.
Regan Wallace has trust issues. Specifically,
trusting that her best friend won’t make good on her threat to send a
Strip-O-Gram for Regan’s birthday. Is it any wonder she’d jump to the wrong
conclusion when two gorgeous, camo-garbed hunks land on her front doorstep?
Woops. The crazy part? They don’t seem the least bit scandalized or offended by
her boneheaded blunder. Judging by the sinful heat in their eyes, they’re all
too happy to provide her with a little two-on-one dirty dancing. For a woman
recovering from a bad breakup, fielding the interest of two sex-on-a-stick men
is both surreal and exhilarating. Indulging a three-way fling? Completely out
of her comfort zone. But with her stay limited to a week, some
no-strings-attached sex might be precisely what she needs to get her confidence
back in stride.None of them are prepared for the consequences
of a sexy fling feeling like so much more. As Regan’s stay draws closer to an
end, Mason and Nash realize there’s no way in hell they’re letting the perfect
woman slip through their fingers. And when it comes to fighting for her love,
there are no fitter warriors for the ultimate battle to her heart.

Masquerade Excerpt

With that, Julia found herself tied naked to a bed in complete and utter silence. It was more nerve-wracking to lay there in the dark, anticipating what was to come, than it was standing on stage in front of everyone. In this position she couldn’t resist. The guy who’d purchased her, had full license to use her as he wanted. That should have left her trembling in fear, but instead, she could feel her pussy clench at the thought of being taken and used. Would he start with foreplay, or just shove his cock into her as if she were a blow-up toy for his pleasure? What if she needed to say her safeword? She knew she couldn’t get punished for safewording, but she was concerned about a man who would play before discussing it either way. Should she beg off? What would Killian tell her to do?

According to Lex, Killian had vetted the man, which meant he trusted him with a new sub. That had to count for something. Instead of questioning a man she didn’t even know yet, she should just jump off the cliff and hope for the best. Resolved to wait patiently for her Master-for-the-night, she began reciting nursery rhymes in her head.

Mary, Mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow?

It seemed like hours before she heard the bedroom door open and the sound of heavy footsteps. There was no way to recognize the man’s footsteps on the plush carpet, but she caught a whiff of a familiar cologne that tickled her brain. Whoever he was, she’d met him before, she just couldn’t figure out where.

His steps stopped at the foot of the bed, and she was hyperaware of the fact that he was staring down at her naked form with a perfect view of her cunt. Did he like what he saw? She knew she was considered overweight in the outside world, but here, in this environment, she’d received such acceptance that it was easy to forget. Suddenly, her curves felt too round and her body too wide. She jolted in her bindings, instinctively trying to close her spread legs. A large hand covered her ankle, and began to stroke her gently.

The contact was enough to help her calm the surprise panic attack, and she inhaled sharply trying to clear her brain of all of her self-conscious thoughts. He wouldn’t have purchased her if he didn’t find her attractive. It wouldn’t have made any sense. Firm in the knowledge that the man with the large hands had to want her, she let her body relax and focused on the warmth of his fingers sliding up the side of her calf.

He didn’t hurry, and he didn’t speak. He just kept touching her. First her ankle, then her calf, then up to her knee, where he took a moment to explore the sensitive crease at the back. She tried not to wiggle at the ticklish sensation, but her muscles twitched against his fingertips. He let out a small chuckle, and she tensed again.

The sound was so familiar. She’d heard it before. Now she was absolutely sure it was someone she’d interacted with, but who? Random people’s face’s populated her brain. From the regulars to the more recent additions, but no one seemed to fit.

When Ashton’s face filled her mind’s eye, she hesitated, and then shrugged it away. He was too experienced for the likes of her, and besides, she’d only seen him play with one-night subs, women who didn’t want a regular Top to take care of them. The whole idea of the auction was to pair off unclaimed bottoms with suitable Tops. There was no way Ashton Reid would have wanted to jump into that pool, especially seeing as how he was the auctioneer.

Unable to pinpoint who her seducer was, she once again focused on his hand drawing lazy figure eights on her thigh, slowly but steadily making its way higher. She could feel her own juices leaking from her slit, and the fact that he could see it only made her hotter. There could be no doubt he was turning her on, and so far, he’d done nothing but touch her.

Just when he reached the crease between her thigh and her pussy, he stopped and pulled his hand away, making her whimper in disappointment. Another chuckle. Another familiar sound tickling her brain. Who was he?

Lori’s Bio

Best-selling author, Lori King, is also a full-time wife and mother of three boys. Although she rarely has time to just enjoy feminine pursuits; at heart she is a hopeless romantic. She spends her days dreaming up Alpha men, and her nights telling their stories. An admitted TV and book junkie, she can be found relaxing with a steamy story, or binging in an entire season of some show online. She gives her parents all the credit for her unique sense of humor and acceptance of all forms of love. There are no two loves alike, but you can love more than one with your whole heart.

With the motto: Live, Laugh, and Love like today is your only chance, she will continue to write as long as you continue to read. Thank you for taking the time to indulge in a good Happily Ever After with her. Find out more about her current projects at http://lorikingbooks.com.

HA Fortman Books ~ Romantic Suspense That Captivates

As many of you know, we lost my Mom in early December. Because of that, I was going to push the release of book two (Tracking The Hunter) back until early January. However, my step Dad approached me and said some things about my writing that brought me to even more tears.

He mentioned how proud he and Mom were, and still are. How amazed that I’d made it to International Bestseller on Amazon with my first book. And several other, personal things. Then he paused, took a deep breath and said, “The day before Mom left us, you called and told her that your second book was ready, right? If it is, do you think you can have them publish it on the 15th of December in honor of her?”

I stopped short. My heart crumbled all over again because, you see, Mom was my best friend. My confidant…
